Swedish electric motorcycle manufacturer RGNT Motorcycles has partnered with German bespoke motorcycle manufacturer Crooked Motorcycles. result? Crooked E-Type: A very stylish and minimal all-electric custom bike. The vehicle was unveiled at the Bikeshed London show this weekend and is now ready for mass production at Crooked’s workshop near Munich.
Crooked Motorcycles CEO and Founder Dominiques Brown said: “At Crooked, we have been looking at projects in the electric vehicle space for some time. .After meeting RGNT at Intermot last October, we were immediately struck by the classic look and simple construction of their bikes.We held several discussions with their team. , and then immediately decided to work together to bring our first EV project to life.”
Dominic Brown and his team worked on developing the donor bike RGNT No. 1 Scrambler SE and adapting it to follow the design principles of the successful Crooked XS400 series. In other words, ‘simplicity is the key to brilliance.’ For this reason, we wanted to get rid of the triangular framed electrical modules and the very large original dashboard to make the frame look more open. Both are miniaturized. . To achieve this, the subframe was redesigned in CAD to make it easier to duplicate and the converter unit was placed in the seat. Additionally, cable ducts were designed by his CAD to protect the cables inside the frame triangle. The rear is raised by 3 centimeters, strengthened with new YSS springs and covered with 3D printed fork covers. Blackened rims with Continental TKC 80 tires, minimal Bates-style LED headlights with Motogadget Blaze turn signals, and Supernova LED brake/taillights complete the build.
RGNT marketing director Gideon Skippernbode has praised the work Crooked’s Dominiks and his team have done ahead of the unveiling of the first special electric model at this weekend’s Bikeshed London show. . It was an amazing feat that he completed in just six weeks, but he worked diligently around the clock to make them happen. We are also proud to announce that our standard bicycles are now available for purchase in the UK. These bikes will not only be on display at the show, but Crooked will also be selling them to customers in the UK and Europe through their website.
